The incidence of dysfunctional family is not only a social problem in individual countries, but has
become a global issue which can deprive many adolescents the opportunity to be psychologically fit
and also excel in all areas of life even to the national productivity and progress. The central theme
of this study was to investigate the impact of dysfunctional families on the psychological wellbeing
of the adolescent with the moderation effect of social support. The study used a cross-sectional
survey design to investigate the dynamics of dysfunctional family and social support and how they
both influence adolescents‘ psychological wellbeing. Two hundred and one students were sampled
from junior and senior high schools to participate in the survey. The data collected were analyzed
quantitatively using descriptive statistics, correlational and ANOVA to explore patterns of
association among variables. The result of the study revealed that Adolescents‘ from a functional
family scored high on psychological wellbeing and there was a negative relationship between
parental conflict and adolescent psychological wellbeing. It is therefore recommended that system
support fora such as discussion groups and in-service training can be used to provide education for
stakeholders with the information and tools they need to assist adolescents with communication of
their emotional, physical, and psychological needs as well as their academic goals.
